CAREER-

1990

Bosnich played for  Sydney Croatia  youth team before moving to England. In 1989, at the age of 17, he joined Manchaster on a non-contract basis and made his debut for them in a First Division  fixture against Wimbledon  on 30 April 1990. A year later, Aston Villa brought him back to England and he established himself as one of the best goalkeepers in the  Premier League during the 1990s.

1992- 95-

Bosnich did not claim a regular place in the Aston Villa first team until the 1993- 94 season. . In the  League Cup  semi-final against  Tranmere Rovers  that season, he dramatically stopped three shots in a penalty shoot-out. He later admitted that he should have been sent off before extra-time began for fouling Tranmere’s  John Alridge .

Villa would go on to win the final, against his former club, Manchester United. In March 1994 Bosnich saved two penalties against  Tottenham  Hotspur , one from Darren Anderton  and one from  Nick Barmby, to help secure a 1–1 draw. These were his 4th  and 5th  penalty saves from open play that season.  1994 – 95 was Bosnich’s 1st  season as Villa’s first-choice goalkeeper, but it was a disappointing season for the club as they narrowly avoided relegation.

1996 – 2000-

In 1996, Bosnich was fined £1,000 and censured by the FA after he was found guilty of misconduct by upsetting fans of  Tottenham Hotspur with a  Nazi salute. Bosnich spent three more seasons at  Villa Park  before his contract expired and he joined Manchester United on a free transfer. He had played 207 times in 7 and 1/2 years with Villa.

Bosnich was signed for Manchester United in the 1999 close season as successor to Peter Schmeichel,   signing on a free transfer after his contract at Villa  Park expired. During the season, he picked up a  Premier League title medal as United were crowned champions by an 18-point margin. That season Bosnich started 23 league games, Raimond van der  Gouw started 11 and Massimo Taibi  started 4. Highlights of this season were saving two penalties in January 2000; one from Necaxa’s Alex Aguinaga  in the  2000 FIFA Club World Championship  and the other from Middlesbrough’s Juninho. He also played a key role in Manchester United becoming the first English team to win the International Cup  in keeping a clean sheet against Palmeiras of Brazil, in Tokyo. 

2001-2004 –

The suspension scuppered a move to Bolton Wanderers  in the newly introduced winter transfer window. Bosnich was keen on the idea of moving to the Reebok Stadium and the player’s agent admitted that dialogue had taken place but Sam Allardyce  remained coy about his interest. In the autumn of 2004, he spurned an opportunity to return to football with League One  side,  Walsall,  who were then managed by  Paul Merson,  who had played alongside Bosnich in his final season at Aston Villa.

Bosnich never played a first-team game for United after the arrival of Fabien Barthez, and on 18 January 2001 he signed for Chelsa  on a free transfer. Problems with his fitness and injury meant his debut did not happen until the following season in a  UEFA Cup  tie against  Hapoel Tel Aviv  Bosnich was earning  A$ 130,000-a-week  at Chelsea.

2005-2007 –

In early 2007, former Chelsea teammate and QPR goalkeeping coach Ed de Goey  gave him inspiration to come out of retirement. By July 2007, Bosnich started training at Queens Park Rangers’   training ground in an attempt to initially get fit, with the view to play professionally again. During the summer he lost 15 kg (33 lb) and claimed to have regained most of his reflexes. In September he kept a clean sheet in goal during a friendly behind closed doors against Barnet,  which QPR won 2–0.
